    Staying at Saratoga Springs in July. Should we request a specific area to stay in and which would you recommend? We are staying 14 nights and won't have a car. We stayed at POR last time and the bus service was fantastic - can we expect the same here?

    Hi there, Jill!

    Congratulations on your nice, long upcoming stay at Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa! My family fell in love with that Resort the first time we stayed there and made the decision to become Disney Vacation Club members because we knew we'd need to visit again and again!

    There are actually 5 bus stops at this Resort which makes transportation really convenient. Even though it's not close to the main buildings, our favorite section is The Grandstand. We really love it because it's the first stop for buses returning back from a great day of Park touring! I don't know about your family, but when we return from a long day, we are ready to fall into bed as quickly as possible to start again fresh the next morning!

    If you're wanting to stay closer to the check-in area where The Artist Palette [store and Quick Service restaurant], Turf Club Bar and Grill, and the main pool - The Springs is the section you'll want to request. I actually had the opportunity to stay in just about all of the different sections here and I love them all! There is another large feature pool at The Paddock which is fabulous as well, especially if you want to stay close to a pool.

    I think you'll be happy at any of these locations! I sure hope this helps!

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if we can help with any others!

    Wishing you Pixie Dusted vacation planning!
